Summary: This is an excellent system. Many people that write reviews here have discussed having an experience that revolved around the inability to play discs, and bad customer support. While I do believe customer support is an important aspect of of smart shopping, I disagree with allowing that to affect how you see the product itself. That being said, I don't know why anyone would need to even contact customer support. I've had this player since late 2008, and it is now June of 2012, and it has always performed properly, and shows no signs of degradation. The speakers function flawlessly, and are very high quality. Aside from the aesthetic appeal, each speaker is endowed with quality and evidence that no corners were cut, each normal speaker weighs roughly 4 pounds, and the sub-woofer weighs almost 20. Typically, the heavier that type of object is, the better made it is, and this is no exception. The player itself works very effectively too, playing Blu-ray, DVD, and audio CD's without any trouble.
My typical use is to have surround sound for my PlayStation 3, but i have used the other features first hand as well, and have encountered no trouble.
If you're one the fence, hopefully i can push you over, because after your wallet goes into shock from the price, your ears and eyes will go into shock because of the sheer perfect quality.
I would recomend this to a friend, as well as recommending an optical cable, for clear, authentic surround sound.
